A child in a hospital once told me that chemotherapy felt like having an earthquake inside them. This comment surprised me so I asked, "what do you mean"? The quick reply was, "it is like the ground is shaking inside you".
I then asked sincerely, "what does one do when the ground feels like it is shaking inside you?" And this very young child thought for a minute and then held their hand above their head and said, "Hold The Sky".
We wrote the first line of this song right there on the spot and sang it over and over again. Afterwards I embraced the heavy emotions I was experiencing in my heart. I have to admit it felt like the ground was shaking inside of me, so I finished the rest of the song.
